SOAKING UP SOME WARM SUN
Some people are better at doing nothing than others. Some do nothing very well while others have to work at it. Doing nothing when there are things to do is sometimes the hardest. With nothing needing done mixed with a desire to do something is not so swell either except when a desire to do nothing when there’s nothing to do comes along and makes everything Okay again. And in this mix of confusion somewhere is where I found myself this morning. Didn’t want to go outside, didn’t want to stay inside. There were things to do inside and outside but I had no desire or motivation to do either one. Guess you could call that a mild case of nothing………
EARLY SPRING FERTILIZING
Warmed up the Jeep against the morning’s below freezing temperatures and with less enthusiasm than a Gazelle at a watering trough of Crocodiles Pheebs and I ventured out for a wee drive. Even my Tim Hortons coffee wasn’t interested in perking me up. Snapped a couple pics along the way and almost before I knew we had left the house we were back home again. And that’s it for another wintery cold Spring day:((
GROANER’S CORNER:(( For a couple years I ‘ve been blaming it on lack of sleep and too much pressure from my job, but now I found out the real reason: I’m tired because I’m overworked!!
The population of this country is 237 million. 104 million are retired. That leaves 133 million to do the work. There are 85 million in school, which leaves 48 million to do the work. Of this there are 29 million employed by the federal government, leaving 19 million to do the work. 2.8 million are in the Armed Forces, which leaves 16.2 million to do the work. Take from the total the 14,800,000 people who work for State and City Governments and that leaves 1.4 million to do the work. At any given time there are 188,000 people in hospitals, leaving 1,212,000 to do the work. Now, there are 1,211,998 people in prisons. That leaves just two people to do the work. You and me. And you’re sitting at your computer reading blog jokes.
